On August 31st, 2017, the Central Election Commission (CEC) delegation attended the Association of World Election Bodies (A-WEB) General Assembly, where the CEC was elected as an executive board member. A-WEB is the world's largest electoral organization with a total of 109 members. With this new role in the association, the CEC will not only be shouldering more responsibilities and mandate but also capable of increasing the visibility of Taiwan internationally.
The General Assembly was held in Bucharest, Romania. In order to obtain more opportunities to share our successful electoral practices and experiences with other member countries, the CEC has actively sought to become an executive board member and were fortunate enough to receive the support from fellow members.
CEC’s new Chairman Dr. In-Chin Chen has assumed the office on November 21, 2017. The CEC have sent out letters to inform the Chairmans, Vice Chairmans, and executive board members of A-WEB and the Association of Asian Election Authorities (AAEA), the Secretary General of A-WEB, Mr. Kim Yong-hi. The CEC also expressed that the collaboration between our parties will further strengthen going forward.
